Solar Thermal – Alternative energy for the home!
Over many years alternative forms of energy have been researched in order to find suitable alternatives to fossil fuel.
Natural energy is all around us in different forms and with latest innovative technology we are finding ways to harness this energy and put it to good use especially in the home for domestic use.
Most of us are very conscious of the depleting fossil fuel reserves and are looking for sustainable and alternative ways of heating our homes and providing adequate hot water.
Some household are using solar thermal system panels on the roofs to support this as a cheap and Green way of provisions for heating and hot water. As you are using the sun to produce the heat which then heats the water in cylinders it saves on gas and electricity which would normally be used. This method is obviously an investment for the future as the longer you use it the cheaper it becomes and eventually pays for its self!
The costs of installing solar heating systems in your home can vary dependant on the size of your property and location. Some companies are able to fit them on top of apartment buildings. The average house would probably be in the region of £4,000 approx depending on size. It’s definitely something to consider especially if you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water!
I think we all have to stop and think about alternative Green options that are available.
One company I know that uses Green technology is Status Heating Greentech they are a Midlands based company of long standing with specialists in all types of heating including solar thermal and are always happy to discuss and answer any questions you have.
